Ferdinand Victor Eugène Delacroix (*26 April 1798 in Charenton-Saint-Maurice, Paris; † 13 August 1863 in Paris) was a French painter of the late Romantic period.
Because of the liveliness of his imagination and because of his generous use of colors, he is considered to be the pioneer of Impressionism and every year he exhibited paintings in the Paris Salon whose passionate subjects caused a sensation and often shocked them.
Delacroix's works are assigned to the French late romanticism, but he refused to be added to the increasingly popular trend of the romantic school. He became the model for many impressionists who decidedly differentiated themselves from the romantic school and classicism.
